Sharon Stone recreates iconic Basic Instinct scene at GQ Men of the Year Awards

Sharon Stone recreated her infamous Basic Instinct scene on stage at the GQ Men of the Year Awards, because why not?

The moment the 61-year-old deliberately flashed police – and the audience – while crossing her legs during an interrogation scene has gone down in history as one of the biggest moments in cinema.

And, 27 years after the scene made history, she decided to remind us all of it in Berlin.

While accepting the award for Woman of the Year, she took a second to sit on a chair on stage before crossing her leg, in front of a packed out crowd which included son Roan Bronstein.

Discussing the infamous scene, she said: ‘Some years ago I was sitting on a sound stage, and my director said, “Can you hand me your underpants because we’re seeing them in the scene and you shouldn’t have underpants on but we won’t see anything”.

‘I said sure. I didn’t know this moment would change my life,’ before encouraging everyone in the audience to recreate the moment with her.

Following an impassioned scene about learning to love who you are, she added: ‘Thank you for choosing me to be Woman of the Year, because there was a time when all I was, was a joke.


Sharon looked incredible at the bash, rocking the red carpet alongside her 19-year-old son.

She opted for a glittery oversized coat on the night, with the biggest shoulder pads known to man, before swapping this for a slinky, sequinned black mini-dress during her award win.

The actress has had a tough few years, after suffering a devastating stroke when she was 43, which left her unable to walk.

And, in a candid interview with Radio Times in 2018, she opened up about struggling to learn how to read and write once more.

‘In 2001, I had a stroke and a nine-day brain haemorrhage that changed my life forever. I had a five per cent chance of surviving,’ she told the publication.

‘When I came home after the stroke, I could barely walk. My hip was unstable. I couldn’t see out of my left eye and I couldn’t hear out of my left ear.

‘I couldn’t write my name for almost three years,’ she continued. ‘I couldn’t get my arm to listen to my mind, so I had to learn to read and write again.

‘I had to learn to speak again. It took years for the feeling to come back to my left leg, but it finally came back.’

Sharon revealed it was watching TV that helped her through the ordeal, adding that she’s ‘really together’ now.
